A stone thrower is a jet weapon consisting of a handle supporting two "Y" branches on which are attached elastic bands connected to a flexible strip (generally made of leather). To use it, a projectile is placed on the leather band and held by the pinch of two fingers; the elastic is then stretched away from the arm holding the handle; the firing is triggered by releasing the pressure of the fingers on the projectile, which is sent off to the intended target.

Some information about the slingshot

Regularly used in children's films, the slingshot is indeed a category D draft weapon. Sometimes called a "slingshot" in colloquial language, it is however totally different from this weapon made of a pouch and two straps.

Linked to the invention of the first removable Michelin tyres, it was made with the bicycle inner tube contained inside. The latter served as a rubber band for the slingshot.

The rustic model is made of a Y-shaped piece of wood and a thick rubber band. The simplest modern industrial model (such as the one from Jean Pierre Fusil) consists of a metal support, a latex rubber band and an ergonomic handle. Depending on the model, it can be equipped with an armrest, a sight, a stabiliser or other accessories.

Depending on the use, it can be loaded with pebbles, nuts, lead, glass or steel balls.
